The presentation of the multivolume edition "Monuments of folklore of peoples of Siberia and the Far East" took place in the Federation Council.

The books were presented by a member of the Committee of the Federation Council on science, education and culture, a correspondent-member of the RAS Arnold Tulokhonov. As he reminds, the edition is published by the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of sciences during more than 20 years. 31 volumes were published during these years. Each of them contains authorial art-works by indigenous ethnic minorities residing on the territory of the region. This edition does not have analogues. It keeps oral epos of disappearing ethnic groups for history, acquaints with monuments of literature classics. Propaganda of such achievements is especially important in the Year of culture, which, according to the presidential decree, should be dedicated to forming of cultural environment in the society and especially to such forgotten form of oral folk arts as folklore, as he notes. After the presentation all the volumes of the edition were passed to the library of the Federation Council.
